Spanish Explorers is a 9-week literal exploration of the Spanish language. It is designed to review the very basics of the langugae and also introduce some new concepts that allow fluency to grow! Students will learn vocabulary, but will then explore a grammar concept that allows them to use that vocabulary in every day conversational situations. Additionally, students will be exposed to a variety of culture topics from various Spanish-speaking countries...making this class a true adventure!
Some topics will include, but are not limited to, the following:
-Spanish-speaking countries and capitals
-Greetings, goodbyes, and basic questions with responses
-Days of the week, months of the year, and asking for/giving the date
-Seasons and weather expressions
-Colors and shapes
-Animals and habitats
Spanish Explorers is mostly a participation-based class. Students will have several classwork assignments to complete each week (whether in class or remotely) with additional activities to complete for bonus credit. Classroom behavior (all students) and attendance (virtual students only) is factored into the grade as well.
